The letter p and the "/" are a few of the culprits.

Any idea why this is happening and how I stop it?

Edit from comment:

I tried xev -event keyboard and it shows keycode 33 followed by an endless list of keycode 135 for the letter p. If I press the "/", it shows keycode 61 followed by an endless list of keycode 135.

  • When is it happening? Does it happen every time? In what application? What does the context menu say? Please improve your question. – zwets Aug 6 at 8:24
  • Use xev -event keyboard to monitor keyboard events. Press the keys that usually result in the problem a couple of times (the xev window has to stay focused). If you see context menu key events firing, your keyboard is probably faulty. – danzel Aug 6 at 8:40
  • It happens in every application...terminal, chrome, firefox, etc. The context menu varies by application. – kaD'argo Aug 6 at 23:50
